possible to recover corrupted reiserfs partition????

hi, I used parted to move around some stuff on my disk (actually qparted), anyways, I moved a reiserfs 5.5GB partition from the end of the disk to the start, and now I can't mount it. the error I get from the console is not a directory. however in qparted on my nifty rescue disc it shows the right amount of usage (4 of 5.5GB i think), and recognizes it as reiserfs, with the correct start and end blocks, etc.... since it doesn't seem to be TOO far gone, is there a way to repair/recover that partition?

I managed to get my files back.....

reiserfsprogs comes with reiserfsck, which can be used to repair various things on fouly reiserfs partitions. I had to use the rebuild-tree option as a last resort (see man reiserfsck), which put all of my files into /lost+found on the drive. the good part: got all of my files back. the bad part: they are all in numbered folders under lost+found (ie 19383_19595, etc). anyways, here's a helpful little page:
